I just finished my 6th book this month: Shan Sa's The Girl Who Played Go. I found the story hard to get into because the chapters (all 2 pages of them for the most part) jumped between two characters. There wasn't enough meat in such short chapters to get drawn into either character. Until the end. I mean the VERY end. Last page the end. BAM! Did not see that coming! I have her book Empress: A Novel on hold at the library but I think I will probably cancel it.
Speaking of Go (the game), I can't wait to see my sister in FIVE DAYS!! We are going on vacation and will definitely be bringing a few games with us! Any suggestions of games to bring to play on the beach and/or while drinking?
